Year One of the Invasion (Month 3)
Rescues picks up right from the end of Refugees, following Finn as he continues (sporadically) his Jedi training and Kaye as her rebellion against her Yuuzhan Vong captors continues. Finn's plotline is okay-- there's some nice space combat action, as he and the Solo twins try to sneak onto a Yuuzhan Vong-occupied planet-- but the high point is definitely Kaye's continuing to amass power and forces to use on the Yuuzhan Vong. It seems to presage a decent into villainy without being completely evil; it's pretty well done, and I look forward to seeing what happens to her in volume 3.
